Huey's Adoption Story

Huey's Adoption Story

Hi, my name is Tony I live in Richmond Virginia. I was looking for a little dog. A friend told me about a dog they had seen at the vet hospital that was going to be up for adoption.

She said, “Tony, he's so cute you should find out about him.”

He was at the New Hope Dog Rescue in New Kent, Virginia.

By the way, the lady that runs that place is awesome. Her name is Lori. I called and went to see this four-year-old Shih Tzu named Huey.
When I got there, she told me that nobody wanted him. I thought that odd because he was stunning.
She said he had been in several homes and badly mistreated. When she got him, he had been beaten and was nothing but skin and bones. So she had to work on him to get him back in shape to be adopted.

We talked for a while, and she told me to take Huey home for the weekend to see if I liked him and if he wanted me, and if not I could bring him back.
Well, that was two years ago. That was the best thing I could have ever done was to take him into my life. Huey has been a great friend and lots of company. How anybody would not want him, I would not know why.

He’s very very smart, loving, has a big personality and is very beautiful. He's more human than dog.

So the dog that nobody wanted is now deeply loved and cherished and has a forever home with me. I love my Huey.

Hi, Janice Here From Miracle Shih Tzu

When I read stories like this one, tears start rolling down my face, but in this case, they were tears of joy because there was a happy ending. I so wish that there were happy endings for all the dogs that end up in shelters.

It always amazes me to think that a person could abuse a dog, let alone a tiny one like a Shih Tzu. They bring such love into our hearts, and we never feel alone when our lives include a dog.

I was lamenting to a friend just recently that even if there wasn’t much reason to laugh in our troubled world, we could always laugh and be happy in the presence of a Shih Tzu.

They don’t judge us, blame us or care whether we’re a Democrat or a Republican. They are as close to unconditional love that we will have in this lifetime.

It sounds like this human-dog relationship, Huey, and Tony is like a match made in heaven. Huey needs Tony and vice versa.

I know that is the case for me personally. I need my dogs as much as they need me. (And, I think they know it too.)
